Inside is a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, paired with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

The entirety of a press release has leaked for the upcoming 4G LTE device by the name of LG Spectrum, an Android device made with high definition content and speed in mind. What's inside is no less than the highest grade set of specifications, starting with a 4.5-inch True HD IPS display complete with Gorilla Glass (maybe Gorilla Glass 2?) and a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor.

Tablets: an Android 2011 Retrospective

Tablets: an Android 2011 Retrospective

When the year 2011 is looked back upon by the Google historians, they'll mark it as the first time they officially made an effort to bring the Android platform to devices with displays larger than handheld smartphones - what we saw, as a result, was everything from the XOOM to the ASUS Transformer Prime. The folks at Google created a version of their mobile operating system Android titled Honeycomb and numbered version 3.0. This operating system began its life in the wild on the Motorola XOOM, a 10.1-inch tablet that by the end of the year would be replaced by the XYBOARD, a tablet which physically in weight and thickness to the iPad 2 - the dominant force in the tablet space throughout the vast majority of this past year.

Complete Ice Cream Sandwich Launch Q and A with Android Authorities

Now that the Galaxy Nexus is being revealed to the world in more places than one and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is about to hit the public in a very big way, there's certainly a few questions you, the Android user, might want answered.

BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 Review

BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 Review

Mention all-touch and BlackBerry in the same sentence, and it's tough not to experience an involuntary Storm-shudder. RIM's belated answer to the iPhone failed to grab it the chunk of the touchscreen smartphone market it expected, and while the Storm 2 was an improvement, the company is yet to entirely convince when there's no physical keyboard. Third time lucky, perhaps, with the BlackBerry Torch 9850, a compact BlackBerry 7 smartphone (aka the Torch 9860, the only difference being CDMA/GSM connectivity) hoping to convince us that QWERTY-free doesn't mean zero appeal. Check out the SlashGear review after the cut.
